2020 Live Canon Collection Competition (for full collections)

Deadline: 25 May 2020

This competition is for full collections.

There is a category for FIRST collections, and a category for SECOND AND SUBSEQUENT collections. 

We consider a collection to be 35+ poems, but if the poems are particularly long (or short) please use your judgment. A collection is generally over 40 A5 pages. Less than that would be a pamphlet (we also run a pamphlet competition, so do take a look at that). 

The collection should not have been published before. It is fine if individual poems within the collection have already been published elsewhere (journals, magazines, online) but please flag this up at the start of the manuscript. 

There is a an entry fee of £12 for each manuscript.

You may enter more than once.
